VIDEO: Use a Brain-Compatible Approach for Instruction

Michael Hebron, the 1991 PGA Teacher of the Year, 1990 Horton Smith Award winner, member of the PGA Golf Professional Hall of Fame and author of Modernizing Approaches to Learning, is a PGA Master Professional at Smithtown (New York) Landing Country Club.

In this video, Michael discusses the differences between teaching and learning in golf instruction. Through years of research, he has been able to create a brain-compatible approach for his instruction. Michael also speaks about his views on drills and why they’re not necessarily useful for learning a new swing technique. Additionally, Michael speaks about training the student’s clubs, not their body. He claims that training the club is much more powerful than trying to teach the body how to move. His approach to teaching has ultimately helped his students improve and helped him achieve national recognition in the industry.
